The actor to reprise Dharmendra's role in Anil Sharma's remake of 'Hukumat'

While father and son have done films together, this will be the first time Sunny Deol will be reprising a role that was played by Dharmendra many years ago.

Anil Sharma, who also helmed the original project, will be directing its remake. Apparently Sunny has already given his nod for the project.

A source says, “Hukumat (1987) starring Dharmendra and Rati Agnihotri was a runaway hit. If things go well then Prakash Raj will play the villain (originally played by Sadavshiv Amrapurkar) in the film.”

Buzz is that Sharma is also planning to re-use one of the famous tracks from the original, Na Zulm that was originally composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

When the film released in 1987, it ran successfully for 75 weeks at the box office. Sharma adds, “It is too early to talk about it as I am busy with another film. There is no other actor better than Sunny to play the lead. Only he can do justice to Dharamji’s character.”
